Here's to a Better Year
Watch the Shake it Off video, you literally look alike.
Hmm… I’m not sure I see that, honestly. But I think she’s really pretty so I’ll take the compliment! Thank you!
You remind me of Taylor Swift
Oooh, that's normal. Most people do that.
It really sucks.
I.. Don't understand. Sickly person?
I get sick around every season change. Stuff like mono, the flu, etc.
Someone once told me that there was a way to forget that the man that loved you and the man that left you are the same person.
When I met him, it was like every love story made sense,
Every song lyric had a new meaning
And every poem had a new muse.
My friends said that they rooted for us
Above anyone else.
We talked about colleges and apartments and families
Without realizing that we were both just children
Filled with dreams that were far more grown-up than we actually were.
When it came time for us to part ways,
We promised each other that distance is just a number on a map,
And the time apart was just a series of numbers on a calendar;
They meant nothing.
We were.. Stronger than the numbers.
See, I was never good at math.
I never realized that numbers always mean something
And every breath without him
Pushed us farther away.
When he left
I can’t say I didn’t expect it.
Where our love once had stone foundations
I felt my feet give way under sand.
I can’t say I expected it to feel the way it did,
Like my heart had stopped.
Like my world had faded into gray
And every thing I had once found beautiful had turned its back.
I felt pieces inside of me break away.
I could only watch as the tide clung to my shoes,
Pulled me under and suffocated me.
The oceans in my mind were unmerciful.
Rivers ran red with my blood and I could take myself no where but deeper
Into the abyss and there was no hand to reach for,
No light to look up to.
When you lose someone that loved you,
When you love someone with every ounce of strength you have left in your body,
You turn away from the sun.
You choose not to feel it.
I chose to let the weight of the world on my shoulders go, and look up.
Someone told me there was a way to forget that the man that loved you and the man that left you are the same person.
So I took a trip to the ocean where we once walked together,
Walked straight into the waves until
I forgot it all.
